TPNM in the Tourism exhibitions of Finland and Israel

After the successful participation of the TPNM consortium in the International Tourism Fairs in China and Japan, the project targets two more key World Tourism Expos in Finland and Tel Aviv in 2014 for the promotion of Corfu, Epirus and Vlora Region.
The previous experience gained from the participation in Asian Tourism EXPOs revealed the encouraging opportunities that exist in such essential markets, for the establishment of advanced cooperation among professionals and for the inflation of Tourist demand for our areas. With this objective we aim at the market of Finland and Israel, anticipating interesting outcomes and more opportunities for international cooperation that would support and even force development in the tourist sector.

MATKA EXPO in Finland receives 76,000 visitors during a period of four days, including over 18,000 professionals in the tourism sector. Our aim is to disseminate the beauties and opportunities offered in these 3 promising touristic destinations, to as many as possible professionals, establishing a strong interest for engaging in tourist development. The Fair will last four days with the opening day being the 16th of January.

In Tel Aviv, TPNM will be present at the 20th International Mediterranean Tourism Market IMTM, for this 2-days Tourism Fair on 11th and 12th of February. Agents, buyers and suppliers of tourist products and visitors will have the chance to meet and become familiar with tourist destinations and services offered.

According to the organizers, IMTM offers the chance to reach the most widely traveled group of people in the world! The Israeli public registers over 4 million trips abroad per year. Israelis travel frequently, with a generous spending budget and average stays of 4-10 nights. This is more than all other travelers in the region and even spending more than some European tourists. In the last 6 years, the Israeli Business Tourism to Europe and other worldwide destinations for Conferences & Incentives Trips has also seen a major increase.
The partners of TPNM project aim at ensuring a balanced and sustainable development of tourism, notably through exchanges of information, exhibitions, conventions and discussions on tourism development in the light of modern trends.
To this promising effort, we invite professionals in the tourist sector to join us by actively contributing to the promotion and development of this common touristic product. Hotel owners, travel agents, rentals’ owners and every interested entrepreneur are all welcomed to become part of this group and to promote their business activity to new markets. Interested businesses may submit their offers on the project portal  or participate directly at the exhibitions using the project stand.
You can contact us for any further details and we are expecting your contribution with printed or other promotion material, participating in this way in two travel fairs creating access to international collaborations.
